Folks like any habit, it takes work to remove it from your life. But to be truly free you must get rid of your sinful habits. And when you get the victory over your bad habit or habits DON’T GO BACK!
So once you remove it (your sinful habit or habits) you must stay on point because you almost invariably repeat the patterns of the past; and the enemy doesn’t use new tricks on you. Old habits revisit us again and again. If you don’t keep your eyes open it is easy to slip back into familiar sinful patterns,”As a dog returns to his own vomit, So a fool repeats his folly.” – Proverbs 26:11. (folly – foolish state, action, belief). That is why you need to be diligent to preserve our spiritual gains.
Set appropriate boundaries to help you protect your spiritual health. And really evaluate the people you call FRIEND! Some will have to go. Setting healthy boundaries for your behavior involves knowing God’s truth and not allowing your own sinful influences to lead you astray.
So, yes it’s going to take some work on your side and remember no secrets!!! (the enemy likes the dark). And WHEN you get the VICTORY over your bad habits don’t be like the dog and return!!
